My first time hiking this area. I had this trail as my destination for this area, however, I discovered this trail is marked for mountain biking. After a giving a try, i decided I'd be better off hiking on the Lone Star Trail close by. The Lone Star Trail is a better alternative since it is a hikers only trail. I had a great hike, mosquitoes were not an issue, came across a couple of snakes and no other hikers.
